Question 1: Features That Distinguish the Primates from Other Mammals Some of the main features of primates include the presence of hands and feet, shoulders and hips, and brain among others. Primarily, almost all living primates like orang-utans have prehensile hands and feet with five digits on these appendages including opposable thumbs for holding on and manipulating objects (Jurmain, Kilgore and Trevathan, 100). The presence of hands and feet enable many primates...

Charles Darwin’s theory of natural selection even though slightly debatable provides a firm insight into what might had been the basis of our...
